This is our absolute FAVORITE treat of this "diet" so far. It is SO good. Nothing diet-y tasting about this!
1/2 c. onions, diced
2 tbsp. fat-free chicken broth, low sodium
2 tbsp. minced garlic
1 1/2 pounds ground turkey breast
1/2 c. sourdough bread crumbs
1/2 cup + 2 tbsp. low-sodium, low-fat marinara sauce
2 tbsp. fresh basil, chopped
2 tbsp. Italian parsley, chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Saute onions in the chicken broth until lightly browned.
Add the garlic and cook 5 minutes more. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
In a large mixing bowl, combine onion mixture with ground turkey, breadcrumbs, 1/2 c. marinara sauce, basil and parsley.
For mixture into a loaf. Shape and place in an ungreased loaf pan.
Brush with the remaining 2 tbsp. marinara sauce and bake until cooked through, 30-45 min.
Drain off fat and let cool before cutting into 8 slices.
